Our Top Up Loans are for members who already have an existing FAIRshare loan, and wish to borrow more money. You need not have repaid your previous loan in full, but you must have made at least 3 months’ repayments before applying for a top up*. Any outstanding loan balance will be taken into consideration when assessing your Top Up application.
PLEASE NOTE – Due to the high level of applications we’re currently receiving, its taking a little longer to process applications at present. Thank you for your patience.
You can apply to borrow between £50 – £7500. Loans of higher amounts may be considered – the maximum that can be borrowed is £7500 above your savings value. If you are unsure of your current saving balance, or if you have any queries, please contact FAIRshare to discuss.
Where top up loans are made, a composite interest rate will be calculated and applied to the loan in total. The composite interest rate takes into account both the rate applicable to the original loan and the rate applicable to the new loan.
*Conditions may apply
If you have made 12 weekly or 3 monthly payments since taking our your Handi-Loan or Handi-Loan Plus, you can top up* using your OpenCash facility – just give us a call & funds could be in your account that day.
You can ‘top-up’ with Open Cash whenever your Handi-Loan value reaches £400 or your Handi-Loan Plus value reaches below £1400. There is no extra cost** & no need to complete an application form. The minimum ‘top-up’ value is £50.
